The Art of Elizabethan Embroidery


Amazon Books

The other day, I told you about an online needlework resource that was new to me – Jane Zimmerman’s website, where you’ll find all her embroidery books, instructional CDs, and a variety of kits and instructional booklets for embroidery and needlework projects. Well, I heard from Jane, and here’s some good news!

During her Christmas sale, Jane had a very special instructional packet available for a gorgeous embroidery project. The project was her Art of Elizabethan Embroidery piece, which incorporates 20 historical embroidery stitches, variations, and techniques.

The Art of Elizabethan Embroidery by Jane Zimmerman

The instruction packet, replete with color photos and all the details on how to finish this piece, was only available for a very short time.

The good news is that Jane is making this available for purchase again right now! If you are interested in learning the art of Elizabethan embroidery, you will want to take advantage of the availability of this instructional packet from one of today’s great masters of historical needlework!

You can read all the details about The Art of Elizabethan Embroidery on Jane Zimmerman’s website.

Don’t delay – it won’t be available forever!

  1. Not a comment but a question. Do you have any idea where Jane Zimmerman’s designs may be bought now? I understand that sadly she has passed away. I am particularly interested in her beautiful “Persian Fantasy”.

    1. I’m not certain. I’ve heard she turned her body of work over to someone – I think an organization – but I’m not sure. I’ll have to follow up on that.
